The Brisbane Broncos are back at home for their first Monday night game of the 2011 NRL season against the Newcastle Knights.
The Knights have been one of the surprise packets so far with two wins and a narrow loss to the competition favourites, St. George.
The Broncos, under new coach Anthony Griffin are three wins from four coming into this game and are desperate to send club legend and captain Darren Lockyer out a winner at the business end of the season.
Their new found resolve in defence (they are yet to concede a try in the second half this season) will look to shutdown exciting Knights playmaker, Jarrod Mullen.
The Broncos showed against Penrith that their attack is starting to come together. With Justin Hodges now fully recovered from his serious ankle injury and regaining confidence with every hitout, its only a matter of time before they put a big score on an opponent.
Coming off a well-earned 10 day break, the young Broncos will be primed to turn it on, so make sure you're at Suncorp Stadium on Monday 11 April to be part of the action.
